Olivia is set for RADA

Phoenix Youth Theatre star Olivia Thom in Oklahoma

Everyone in Phoenix Theatre & Phoenix Youth Theatre are sending the warmest of congratulations to one of our dearest young stars, who has accepted a place at the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

Olivia Thom has had a special place in Phoenix Youth Theatre over the years - first starting as one of our smallest pupils over 10 years ago before returning to take the stage by storm more recently, including her star turn as Ado Annie in 'Oklahoma'.

She is set to start RADA's Foundation Course in Acting next month and we could not be more proud of her - or jealous of her new classmates for getting to watch her star continue to shine!
